In spite of the challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, both the European Commission and the Council of Europe have come together to help organize some of the most innovative and creative European Heritage Days yet. The theme of the 2020 celebrations is: “Heritage and Education: Learning for Life”.
The aspirations of young people around the world need to be at the core of our political, social and economic development debate. Protecting and fighting for youths’ equal rights, particularly in developing regions, contributes to a fairer and more sustainable development. On the International Youth Day, the EU highlights the importance of giving voice to the young people and empowering them to better address the challenges of the future.
